Security BSides London workshops are all about sharing information, spreading knowledge and having a laugh.
For BSides London 2019 you brought a great diversity of topics: we had networking, offensive security, but also threat modelling and other topics from the blue side. The rooms were full and what is most important - the attendees loved it! Time to make it even better.
2020 was the year when BSides London happened to have the 10th edition but a pandemic hit! Hence the theme this year is Post apocalypse blues and we want to take workshops to 11. We are open to all matters around information security - and we mean all things! Your workshop can be technical, business-oriented or anything in between as long it gives the community a hands-on experience. If you have a really leftfield (and reasonably safe…) idea, don’t worry about whether it’s possible, just submit it and we’ll work it out together. Hacking, building things, breaking things, soldering, wiring, making spaceships; but also managing a project, writing a blog, building a team, managing disclosures, mental health and keeping sane while hacking, the floor is open and all are welcome.
We will be holding the workshops on Friday, November 12th (a day before the main BSides event) at the ILEC Conference Centre, 47 Lillie Road, London, SW6 1UD,
If you're an expert in your field and you want to share your passion, we’re here for you. Submit your workshop proposal via the form below and we can help make it happen at BSides London 2021!To fill the submission form, apart from the usual things (like a name) you will need:
Those are, more or less, the questions on the form - there are no tricky ones. You don’t need to prepare anything at this stage (that is, you don’t need to upload any documents), but we will ask you for some materials if you get to the second stage so it’s good to have them ready - they don’t need to be final yet though!
We’re here to help, so feel free to drop us a line at workshop2020 [at-sign] securitybsides [dot] org [dot] uk or via Twitter @BSidesLondon with any questions you may have - it will help us improve this and future events.
Last year we got many questions about accommodation, travel expenses and other benefits and this time we want to be clear on this beforehand: being a not-for-profit community driven event (we are all volunteers) we are unfortunately unable to pay for any of those.
We’ll be with you at each stage letting you know whether you’ve made it through the selection round or not. If not, we’ll be able to offer you other ways to participate in the event and will contact everyone individually with more information.
We wish you all the best in preparing your workshop and look forward to seeing you at Security BSides London 2021!
All the best
